Jubliation Day Brings Gospel Music to Gaithersburg City Hall Concert Pavilion
Gospel music, the uniquely American art form that gave rise to jazz, blues, R&B, and rock and roll, will be celebrated in all of its glory as the City of Gaithersburg presents the 5th Annual Jubilation Day 2012 Gospel Concert, taking place during the kick-off weekend of the City’s Outdoor Summer Concert Series.
On Saturday, June 2 from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m., the Concert Pavilion at City Hall will host performances by local and regional choirs, choruses, quartets, dancers, and singers. The celebration will also feature food and crafts for purchase.
This year’s featured performer is Jay Caldwell & the Gospel Ambassadors. The group has been together for over 40 years, continuing to give the world a sound that is unique to all who listen to them. They have recorded twelve albums, with such songs as “Take it Away,” “Grand Mama’s Hands,” ”Leaving Jericho,” “Walking in Jerusalem,” “Victory,” and “Take off your Shoes.” The group has traveled to several cities and continues to spread the gospel through music wherever they go. Road to Glory Records is proud to include Jay Caldwell & the Gospel Ambassadors as one of the many talented artists signed to its record label.
Gaithersburg’s Concert Pavilion is located at 31 South Summit Avenue in front of City Hall. Admission to Jubilation Day is free. The event is sponsored in part by Allied Party Rentals, Maryland State Arts Council, S.E.A. Reflections, and Subway of Olde Towne, with contributions from Victor Litz Music Center, Red Door Salon & Spa - Gaithersburg, Family Christian Store, the Gaithersburg Arts Barn, and the Gaithersburg Miniature Golf Course at Bohrer Park.
Look for concerts and events at the City Hall Concert Pavilion throughout the summer. With Tribute Band concerts and Family Fun Nights on the first and third Fridays from June 1 to August 3 and children’s entertainment on Thursday mornings from June 7 to August 9, there will be something for everyone in the family. We’ve even added three movie nights at parks throughout the City, with screenings of “Kung Fu Panda - the Kaboom of Doom,” “Puss in Boots,” and “Spy Kids 4.”
